|Dr. Hans-Juergen Schulten
Coordinator of Microarray (Affymetrix) Service Unit
Assistant of Microarray (Agilent) Service Unit
Cancer Genomics & Genomic Screening Research Groups
Dr Schulten studied biology from 1989 to 1994 with the major in microbiology and the minor in biochemistry and ecology at the Technical University of Braunschweig, Germany. His diploma thesis focused on chitin-decomposing bacterial populations in different soils in an ecosystem network. From 1995 to 1998 he performed his doctoral study at the Institute of Human Genetics, University of Goettingen, Germany. In his doctoral thesis he worked on the transcriptional and translational regulation of the developmental proacrosin gene by in vitro and in vivo studies. From 1999 to 2007 he worked as a postdoc at the Gastroenteropathology Department of the University of Goettingen in the field of molecular cytogenetics. Subsequent to a short employment at the University of Toledo, OH, Dr. Schulten joined the CEGMR in 2009 where he is working in the field of tumor biology and supervises the Affymetrix Microarray Service Unit.
